The Otaku Box - December 2022

The Otaku Box December 2022 Items
Hey there. The December Otaku Box is here!!! I sure do love me some anime stuff and I'm just so glad that I get a box of quality otaku goodies each month. This month's goodies include items from awesome anime such as: Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon (DanMachi for short), High School DxD, and Darling in the Franxx. So let's dig into The Otaku Box - December 2022 Edition and get a closer look at what's inside.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon - Goddess Hestia
Goddess Hestia Anime Figure

Hestia! This figure is awesome on quite a few levels. Firstly, it's Hestia. Duh.... lol Secondly, this is a larger prized figure than what we are accustomed from The Otaku Box. Most of the previous figures are approximately 6 inches tall. This Hestia figure stands at 7 inches tall! It may not seem like much but that one inch makes a different in the overall proportions of the figure. A larger stature really bodes well for Hestia, since it helps to emphasize more of her prominent features: Her long hair, long legs, crystal blue eyes, snug dress. It all looks really amazing on this figure!

On a side note, big props to the figure designer here. We all know that Hestia is a bit on the busty side and most fan art exaggerate her busty figure. Not too say that that is bad, but it can be a bit too much sometimes. This Hestia design is well proportioned and I'm glad that more of the focus went to Hestia's other aspects. Just look at the definitely of her legs and the nice dimple created by her bellybutton. Again, a very well designed figure and I can't say enough great  things about it! Well done, Liz!

High School DxD - Rias Gremory Christmas Banner
Rias Gremory Christmas Banner
This is such a fun banner of Christmas time Rias. Her smile, her pose, her outfit, the colors, and the overall joy expressed by Rias makes this banner one of the better ones. Everything here really pops and brings a smile to face. Love it! 

The Otaku Box - Lix Christmas Ornament
The Otaku Box Liz Christmas Ornament
Ornament from Liz!!! This one is so cool. Another really fun design here. Liz wrapped around with Christmas lights is simply adorable! And the ornament is a ceramic ornament so you do need to be careful not to break it. The only downside about receiving this item in the December box is that I received it AFTER Christmas so I'm going to have to put this away and put it up next Christmas.

Darling in the Franxx - Zero Two Pillow Cover
Zero Two Pillow Cover
Another adorable design!!! This Zero Two pillow case is a unique item but is definitely a head turner! I generally take pictures of the items I received inside of my, "picture box," but I had to stuff a pillow in this one to do it justice. The moment I set it on the recliner, one by one, family members would come up to it and snuggle against it. lol I'm telling you, these practical items tend to be a big hit and this one is no exception!

The Otaku Box - Devil/Angel Dishwasher Sign
Rias Dishwasher Dirty/Clean SignRias Dishwasher Dirty/Clean Sign
This item made me chuckle! Not in a bad way! I couldn't tell you how many times someone at home have peeked into the dishwasher to see if the dishes were clean or dirty. With a sign like this, there will be no more guesswork! Just slide the sign to expose the devil for dirty and then slide it over to the other side to expose the angel for clean. A genius idea made even better with this Rias decor!

Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon - Ais Wallenstein Button
Ais Wallenstein Button
Hey! Wait a minute... I recognize this design!!! This is the same design that was included in the December 2020 The Otaku Box! Oh man... Ais just can't catch a break. The Otaku Box subscribers vote for which design makes it to the banner that month and the runner up gets the button. Because Ais has gotten the button treatment twice, means she came runner up twice. It's ok, Ais, you still look pretty cute in your Santa outfit and I'm sure that Bell still wouldn't mind getting a visit from you!

High School DxD - Kuroka Waifu Card (Bonus Item)

Kuroka! Another beauty clad in black and red! Koneko's older sister, Kuroka, really shines in this waifu card. Her yellow obi and gold beads are a perfect accent to her overall design. Also, I really like that the forest is the backdrop of this card. I might be wrong here, but I believe that when we first meet Kuroka in the anime (and light novels), she confronts Koneko in the forest. I really like the throwback to her first appearance here. Well done!

The Otaku Box - I love Anime Decal Sticker (VIP Item)
I Love Anime Sticker
I know... I know... it's nearly impossible to read... but this is a decal sticker that reads, "I love anime," in Japanese. I chuckled because my initial thought was that it's a bad design to affix a white decal sticker against a white background. lol I was told later on that this is the norm. I don't get why. I mean... it's really hard to see what it says! lol ANYWAYS, this bad boy is going right on my BLACK guitar case! Here's a picture of my case so you can see the sticker in action.
I love Anime Sticker

The Otaku Box - Popular Anime Keychain (Free Item)
Anime Keychain
I love the idea of a freebie item from Liz! This month's free item is The Otaku Box 2023 Calendar but that's for new subscribers only. Us awesome legendary subscribers get an alternate item. And this keychain is that item!  And I think it's pretty cool! Demon Slayer (mask), Dragon Ball (dragonball), That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime (Rimuru), and Konosuba (flying cabbage) are all represented by these charms. And just for a bit of good fortune, a lucky cat charm too! Love it!

And there you have it, folks. The Otaku Box - Decmeber 2022 Edition. Man, I've been really loving some of the stuff I've been getting here. Also, because I am now considered a Legendary Subscriber (being a member for a year or more), I get the Bonus and VIP items in my Otaku Box. If you're an anime fan, make sure to check in next month and see what anime goodies are in the next box.

Lastly, going through the items this month, I'm going to give my favorite item vote to...  Hestia! Zero Two is a close second but this Hestia figure is really on a level on it's own. A great addition to my anime figure collection!

So which item is your favorite in this month's box? Let's hear it in the comments, friends!!! Later
